Elongated Stitch Edging
I received an email from Knitting Daily this morning with this link and wanted to share it. It is a very pretty edging, I can't say I've ever seen one like it before.

That is very pretty! Those elongated stitches are just a shorter version of what is often done on scarves or shawls. They usually wrap the stitch 5-+ times. It's sometimes called drop stitch, too.

I can't find the pattern for the drop stitch drama scarf. I went to the link on Ravelry, and to the site but didn't see the pattern. Can anyone help? TIA

Oh wow. Mine loaded just fine, but try searching for the Free Drop Stitch Drama Scarf by Melissa Horozewiski.

It reminds me of hairpin lace...

Scroll down and go to "errata press". The download link is under it at least for me. Not sure why it's hidden like that, but maybe because I'm on my iPad.

Now I know I'm insane. That drama scarf made me think of making a lampshade. I've been looking for something to turn into a hanging lamp and I think I might just knit something up for it. I could knit it in the round and increase on the garter rounds. Add metal rings and make it a hoop skirt for a light bulb. Thanks for the link and the inspiration, Jan!
